|The Argos Fiasco - If I Start Making A Noise Like That You'd Better Come and See What's Wrong [blat10] - The Argos Fiasco|
Noises around the home, sounds from between sounds, stuttering echoes and memory tricks, beaten acoustics and rumbling growl. Recorded in a summer of change, this album charts a coming to terms with the locality the Argos Fiasco were born in.
Keywords: Music; Experimental
|poil - Aphorisms [blat14] - poil|
Rhythmic, melodic, haunting, at times odd, at other times satisfying. This is an album of electronics, pure tones, beats, rasping digital modulations and sensitive arrangements.
|The Argos Fiasco - Eat First Think Later [blat02] - The Argos Fiasco|
Cut-up and mangled audio collage, rearranging in melancholic trust immediate bedroom claustrophobia. Pieced together from radio, found sound, collage, nearby audio sources, imagined melodies and cassette by-products, this digital transfer retains the hum and texture of the original tape-release.
Keywords: Found Sounds; Isolationism
|bla - Remixs [blat11] - bla|
each track proceeding from track 2 onwards has been pieced together from samples from the previous tracks. Despite this limitation, bla continue to suprise and develop their sound in one of their most exciting albums to date. Rich and sombre textures follow light, dreamlike passages of ambience that give in to more conventional rhythm-led pieces. The whole album exhibits an unusual warmth in tone combined with spacious arrangements and bla's usual pure-electronics remit.

The first bla release and the beginning of explorations into pure electronics. This album focuses on repetative elements in an airy mix full of detail and tiny mechanical sound.
Keywords: Minimal Techno
|Le Liberateurs - Evidence From The Seance Room [blat01] - Le Liberateurs|
A taste for rave breaks, gabba hardcore and mangled samples surge into fast, hard and loud tracks. Not without a certain humour and an ear for juxtaposition, but still uncompromising as regards the dancefloor.
Keywords: Digital Hardcore; Happy Hardcore
|poil - Live at DS04 [blat15] - poil|
Recorded live at DS04, this EP documents the first public performance utilising poil's unique Shape Sequencer instrument. Clicking, wobbling, stuttering and bending loops collide and evolve in a hypnotic and fascinating electronic sound-field. The Shape Sequencer is a graphical instrument where sounding shapes are manipulated using joypads to record small looping seqments of varying length and speed.
